Canon Ambassador Tania Freimuth has come a long way since starting out in the film industry as a clapper loader, recently working on the critically acclaimed short drama Kid Pitfall; on Little Darlings, a live-action comedy-drama miniseries for Sky Kids, as DoP; and on Cyn, a short film about John Lennon's first wife, Cynthia. But despite working with large crews on big-budget productions, Tania continues to also invest her creative energy in personal indie film projects.
"You're going to need so much passion," says Tania, who is based in the UK. "Making a film in itself is tough. If you're going to make an independent film, it is a challenging journey personally. You are exposing a side of yourself. You're having to dig deep to really understand the truth behind what's motivating you to make the work. You're not doing it for any sort of corporate or commercial reasons. It's purely driven by your creativity and passion. That's key."
Here, Tania shares her tips on how to make a short film and explains why she believes the Canon EOS C70 is an ideal camera for indie filmmakers.
